Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Winter Steam Gala 2015 DVD
The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, the only complete branch line in the UK is well re-known for holding their annual Winter Steam Gala. The event is an important event on many enthusiasts calendars for holding a varied range of trains running along the picturesque five mile branch line.
The annual 2015 Winter Steam Gala featured the launch of resident BR 4MT No.75078 returning to service, making its first gala appearance since 1998. Running over the cold, damp mornings of March 2015 a collection of engines tackled the steep gradients from Keighley to Oxenhope.
Appearing at its first Winter Steam Gala since returning from overhaul last summer, SR West Country No.34092 'City Of Wells' once again hauled a variety of trains throughout the weekend.
Also making a welcome return to the Worth Valley was 0-6-0ST Manning Wardle No.1210 'Sir Berkeley' owned by the Vintage Carriage Trust but normally based at the Middleton Railway in Leeds. 0-6-0ST 'Sir Berkeley' last appeared at the Worth Valley in 2008 as part of the 40th Anniversary Celebrations.
Footage is included from throughout all three days of the event. Trackside footage is included throughout the DVD, an aspect not available to the general public. A wide collection of freight, vintage, express and passenger services also feature throughout the DVD.
Also featured on the DVD is a short photo charter with BR 4MT No.75078 and SR West Country No.34092 'City Of Wells' re-creating 'The Pines Express'.
